Today, it is a known fact that the groundwater quality is degrading day by day which is a serious concern nowadays, aswater with poor quality pose threats to human health and hygiene. Good quality of water is of utmost importance for survivalof man and animals, and as we know because the groundwater aquifers are the largest source of fresh water, theircontamination will prove to be havoc. In the light of aforesaid facts it becomes necessary to assess the current groundwaterquality of Shahjahanpur city, in terms of pH value, total dissolved solids, Chlorine, Calcium, Magnesium, Fluorine andNitrate levels, by taking samples from bore wells. In terms of Ph value, TDS, Cl, Ca, and Mg, the values were within theacceptable limits as prescribed by W.H.O, while the levels of F and NO3 were detected to be exceeding their permissiblelimits. Thus, the study reveals the need for proper and timely evaluation of groundwater quality and simultaneouslyhighlights the urgency of the necessary steps to be taken for the preservation and up gradation of water quality to managethe present water resources.
